Accessing Australia’s Administration Appeals Tribunal

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) reviews decisions made by the Commonwealth Government and other organisations about child support payments, family assistance and social security, tax, visas, Veterans’ payments, and many more. They can review decisions made under Commonwealth and Norfolk Island laws. They aim to make the review process accessible, fair, just, economical, informal and quick.

The AAT has released a video to explain its purpose and how its staff can help. The video includes plain English speaking, Auslan interpretation, captions, and transcript.

The AAT can also review a range of NDIS-related decisions made by the National Disability Insurance Agency  under the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013, including decisions about who is eligible to access the scheme, supports provided under the scheme and the registration of providers of supports.
